New Routes

by Sacro

New Routes offers male short term prisoners under the age of 25 a ‘through-the-gate’ support service providing practical and emotional support to help them move back into the community and begin to build a life free of offending.

Young men referred to New Routes are matched with a mentor while in prison. The mentor will work with the young man to develop their independence and social skills, link to appropriate services, explore aspirations, identify goals and put in place achievable steps to improve their quality of life. This support and advice continues after release from prison where mentors can accompany them to appointments and advocate on their behalf where appropriate. Specialist family support is also available to help with re-integration and help achieve stability.
